They need a PP QB and Letang isn't it. The lack of a true QB up high is killing the PP.
Do you think we have a decent solution on the current roster? I'm not sure that we do. Despres is really the best option left to try unless we just go with Martin for the sake of safety and just concede that our point man can't shoot the puck. Martin does have one PP goal from a point shot this year. At least he can put his wristers near the net.

--------Neal
-------------Crosby
---------------Malkin

Letang ------ Martin/Despres

I still think Letang is a valuable PP player when he doesn't have to think so much. And I certainly think the PP could live without Kunitz on it
